Breakside Expands California Distribution

Breakside Brewery and Delta Pacific Beverage have partnered to distribute the Oregon-based brewery’s innovative, award-winning beers to several areas throughout California including South Bay, East Bay and Central Valley. They will kick-off the new partnership with a series of region-wide launch events planned for early February during San Francisco Beer Week in cities around the region.

“Expanding down the I-5 corridor was a natural for us, and in Delta Pacific, we have a distribution partner that fits our values and vision,” said Scott Lawrence of Breakside Brewery. “Delta Pacific came highly recommended and, after a couple of meetings, we knew we would be successful together, not to mention being able to sit down and enjoy a beer together at the end of the day.”

The new distribution will encompass 14 counties ranging from Santa Clara all the way to Fresno and Tulare. This grows the brewery’s California presence beyond its 2016 launch with Mussetter Distributing farther north in the state.

Starting later this month, 22-ounce bottles and draft will be available throughout the new area, including core year-round offerings such as: Breakside IPA, two-time winner in the highly competitive American-style IPA category at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF); Wanderlust IPA, a golden IPA made with five different hops and also a GABF award winner; and Breakside Pilsner, a traditional German-style lager with clean bitterness. Beginning in late March, six-packs of Stay West IPA and Pilsner will also be available, along with a seasonal lineup of the brewery’s creations.

Chris Dunn of Delta Pacific said, “We pride ourselves on having one of the most unique craft beer portfolios in Northern California, so we are especially excited in this upcoming relationship with Breakside Brewery. This award-winning brand will be well-received in such a distinctive and expansive market, and we can’t wait to share these beers!”
